diatribes-christian graf - odeur de bitume mouillÃ©
Diatribes began its existence under another name dÂincise dÂoÃ¹ inductions in a Geneva basement in
winter 2004. The idea behind the band was to mix three distinct sources (wind, percussion and
electronic) in order to develop a malleable mass of sound. The saxophone and drums get confused
with the treatment of their own sound, in a primary dance, where construction and destruction
coexist, and envy and disgust unite. The relationship with the audience is deep and intimate.
Dreams and fears become noise and silenceÂ
